OK, if not spectacular overview on how immunization occurs and how vaccines are made. You'll be interested to know how smallpox vaccines are made. With a blender too! Mmmm! Just think of that next time you're ordering a frappacino at Starbucks! Plenty of footage of kids getting shots as well.
The usage of animals for testing is always appaling, but is used to a minimum in this film.
